Why do I need a domain name?
Domain names are allocated by the InterNIC on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a domain name has been registered, it is no longer available. The most popular and easily-remembered domain names are being reserved daily, at the rate of one domain name every 5 seconds!
At that rate, in the near future, only obscure domain names will be available to the general public.
As long as you have an Internet service provider for your website,a domain name is not required. However, a good domain name creates inherent value for your organization. Domain names that reflect the name of your organization (i.e. sony.com, intel.com, ford.com) are an invaluable asset to your company.

As the Internet grows and domain names become morescarce, premiums for existing domain names will increase significantly.
Before you go on, you may wish to check to see if your domain name has already been taken.
Why do I need one right now?
- to avoid costs of address changes later on.
- to avoid somebody else from registering the name you want.
- to maximize the chances of a successful internet presence.
- Eventually, the .com's will be all taken up! Don't be left behind -- the faster you act, the better your chances for getting the domain name you want. Once a domain name is taken, you would have to track down the owner to see if they are willing to sell it.
What if I'm not a business?
Domain names aren't just for businesses. People everywhere are securing domain names for personal or group use.
Act quickly! Domain names are being registered at the rate of one domain name every 5 seconds! It's time for you to take advantage of the internet boom!
